How does RORO machinery shipping work?

The machinery is carefully loaded on one of our vessels. The choice of vessel depends on the size, weight, and type of machinery being transported. We use specialized roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) cargo ships.

RoRo ships have ramps that allow for easy loading and unloading of wheeled machinery. Furthermore, underdeck stowage on our RoRo vessels offer a dry and controlled atmosphere which means no seawater will reach your cargo during transportation. As a result, you can rely on less costly packaging solutions when making your cargo ready for transportation.

How clean does it have to be?

Before shipping machinery, it's essential to clean and decontaminate it thoroughly.
